  1. Excellent win, as we keep up the pace despite the early scare. Great to see Hazard back to his best! We look so much better when he's up and about.
  2. One of the best performances we've produced all season, so that was excellent to watch. Clearly in third now and breathing down Manchester United's neck. Considering the shaky start we had at the beginning of the season, I think we've rebounded quite well.
  3. Jose Mourinho thread

    I understand people dislike Mourinho these days, but I'm still very fond of him despite the snide comments from him in recent times. It's hard to forget what he achieved with us as managers all those years ago. In saying that, it's a great feeling that we defeated his Manchester United team again and the fact that it hasn't been smooth sailing for him over there makes it extra satisfying.
  4. Antonio Conte - Now Officially Manager

    I can't understand the rumours of Conte being potentially sacked in the near future. It's evident we haven't performed to the same standards as we did last season and we've had some shaky moments, but we're not in disarray and I think the talk of him being sacked is too premature to say the least. We're only one point behind Manchester United now and still sit in the top 4. We're in the quarter finals of the League Cup and there's still time to turnaround our Champions League form. I agree with another poster here that it's possible Conte could walk at the end of the season, with the lack of long-term commitment, but I think the club will cross that bridge when it gets to it. As it stands, Conte is contracted for this season and next.
  5. Huge relief to obtain the three points.
  6. Our league chances are gone now. At best, we'll be fighting for a top 4 spot this season.
  7. I feel sorry for Carlo, but it sounds like his tenure at Bayern Munich became increasingly toxic. I wouldn't be surprised if he decided to cash in and head to China.
  8. Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    I was very happy for the club to sell KDB and Lukaku back in 2014. I didn't enjoy the Ancelotti era compared to the majority of other supporters, despite the frenetic nature of our scoring ability. I'm forever grateful for winning the title in 2009/2010 and also winning the FA Cup in 2010, but I found Mourinho and Conte's teams more enjoyable to watch.
  9. Excellent post, Davey! You beautifully articulated my own thoughts on the game. We haven't had an easy start in terms of the difficulty of our fixtures, compared to Manchester United, but it's pleasing to see that we're overcoming any obstacles that confront us. The competition is tougher this year, but I trust Conte enough to believe that we'll be right up there at the end of the business end of the season. You raise an excellent point that the depth of the squad is beginning to emerge and in the event of injuries/suspensions, this will come in very handy for us. It's deeply satisfying to see Morata perform well and adjust to the English game as quickly as he has. He possesses so much talent and it makes me happy that we chose to sign him over Lukaku.
  10. Alvaro Morata

    Feels great to see Morata firing. I always preferred him over Lukaku and I'm glad the club signed him.
  11. Diego "the guv'nor" Costa

    It didn't end on good terms, but he was a great player for us especially in our two title winning seasons and for that I will always be thankful for his contributions. I wish him well at Atletico Madrid.
  12. Jose Mourinho thread

    These are Mourinho's quotes about the League Cup. He never said it sucked. "If you ask me 'could English football survive or be even be better without this competition?' Maybe. "Maybe we would be fresher for European competition." "If the competition is an official competition then it is important for Manchester United and for me as a manager," "I want the players to think the same way. We have this competition, we have to respect the sponsors, we have to respect the opponents and a lot of us are trying to do our best. "If we can win it, we win it. If we don't win it it's because the opponents are better than us." http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/41342603
  13. An excellent win, and fantastic to see some of our fringe players get a chance to show their worth. I'm pretty confident we'll beat Everton in the next round. Under Conte, we've definitely had the wood over them.
  14. Jose Mourinho thread

    Today marks 10 years since Mourinho first departed the club. Time flies.
  15. After the stumbling block we encountered at the beginning of the season, it's great to see the team has regained its mojo quickly. I think tonight demonstrated that we have the depth to compete with the best.
